Keith Urban Co-Hosts “Today” Show & Reveals His Most Embarrassing Celebrity Encounter

Keith Urban Co-Hosts “Today” Show & Reveals His Most Embarrassing Celebrity Encounter

Following in the footsteps of Darius Rucker and Reba McEntire, Keith Urban took a turn behind the anchor desk this morning (Feb. 7) when he co-hosted the third hour of the Today show with Al Roker and Sheinelle Jones.

Along with his anchoring duties, the Aussie singer was asked to play a game of country confessions, where he pulled questions out of a cowboy boot (how very country) and confessed the answers.

The first question: Better accent, Southern or Australian? Keith played it safe by saying “Australia is Southern” before going into his own questionable Southern accent.

The next question was easier for Keith: What’s the craziest thing an audience member has ever done at one of your concerts?

“Someone from way out in the audience yelled out, ‘Will you sign my leg?’ I thought ‘This is great,'” Keith recalls. “I said ‘Yeah, this would be great, come up onstage and I’ll sign the leg.’ She disappeared and I couldn’t see her for a minute. Next minute she lobbed this prosthetic leg onto the stage. It hit the stage with a thud. So I signed it and thought, ‘What’s the proper prosthetic leg returning etiquette?’ Do you throw it back, do you have her come up and get it?”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
